#106 (#42) - Tempted All Night ~ Liz Carlyle
It was a complete delight to get my hands on another Liz Carlyle book ... it didn't disappoint ... up to her usual standard with a 4 **** Star rating. Well written and witty, featuring yet again Mr Kemble, although there was a little disappointment that he wasn't that wonderfully violet in this one.
Lady Phaedra Northampton (the Sister of Lord Nash) is a very proper and quiet English Miss, only really it seems interested in her Bluestocking pursuits - she does, however, have a dark secret in her past.
When her Maid's Sister goes missing from the village she gets pulled into the seedy underworld to try and find out what happended to her. When she's almost the witness to a murder, she develops a new friendship, and meets the former mercenary Tristan Talbot, Lord Avoncilffe, who has been asked to investigate the dark secrets behind a spy ring which disguises its activities behind a notorious brothel.
In what should have been a simple assignment the pair become deliciously entangled against deadly enemies and their passionate natures.
It's on to the last of the Loveday series now, which I'm not all that hopeful for.
